Take-Apart Hinge

Also called slip joint hinges or lift-off door hinges, Take Apart Hinges are usually used to securely attach a lid or door but still allow for easy and quick removal without the use of any tools. This type of hinge, commonly used on removable lids, doors, panels, and gates, is perfect for lid or door enclosures that require frequent disassembly. Take Apart Hinges have three components: the male leaf, the pin that is attached to the male leaf, and the female leaf. With this kind of hinge, customers are able to save time because unscrewing the screws before taking out the hinge is no longer required. Instead, the hinge either slips apart or is lifted apart in order to remove the lid or the door.

Twist Latches

Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products has designed twist latches, wing latches, and butterfly latches for any type of enclosure. The flush-mounted design makes them especially useful in circumstances where the latch needs to be unobtrusive and compact. These latches allow users to engage or disengage a hook from a keeper with a simple twisting motion. At Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products we have designed our twist latches so that the wing that engages/disengages the latch and can fold down to lay flat on the latch. This is great feature for enclosures that are moved around a lot or for an enclosure that must be as thin as possible.

At SPEP we understand that proper design and function is just as important as overall quality. This is why we have made several different twist latch designs. Each design is made from high quality steel and stainless steel to resist corrosion in damp conditions. We have also included a padlock eye in some of the twist latches in order to make the enclosure more tamper resistant. These latches are also available in a variety of different configurations and sizes to accommodate a large variety of enclosures.

We are a 100% ESOP company meaning only our employees own the company. Therefore quality and customer satisfaction are always on our mind and our ISO 9001 certification shows that even more. We take great pride in our products and services so if you feel we can assist you with any of our products or perhaps a custom part please feel free to call and speak to our excellent sales team.
